"In learning about a language one also learns about the culture that produced it--the beliefs, traditions, habits, attitudes, ways of making a living, interpretations of natural surroundings, ideas about marriage, children, etc. I discovered that my Eurocentric education had left me sadly ignorant about Africa, so I began to educate myself by reading books by African writers. "Things Fall Apart," by Chinua Achebe, had a great impact on me.I developed a desire to see for myself this milieu that was clearly so different from my own."
To mark the 1st year anniversary of Liber Book club, Enugu, Nigeria, its members wrote They Came To Stay- a collection of short stories. Not that they are amateurs , they are closet writers who have attempted to produce a literary work commensurate with that of their model authors.
This e-book does not only contain short stories themed around mermaids or mammywater as its fondly called in Nigeria. It also features the summary of Liber Book club discussions and a cross word puzzle game of all the books the members have read as a group.
It is hoped that you will be moved to read those books too and attempt the crossword puzzle game.
Written by Uche Osita James, The Rule of Salt and other stories contain the following :
